'Game of Thrones' Is Coming to a City Near You
Look, we know you've cranked the Game of Thrones theme song up to 11 in a desperate attempt for Westerosi pleasure. We know that, as the strings blare, you've marched around your house like you're Jon Snow capturing Castle Black. And we know you've karaoked the lyric-less score with syllabic noises that resemble Dothraki insults. No shame. We've been there, too.
Now, finally, there's a place for you and your fellow Game of Thrones music buffs to congregate: beginning Wednesday, February 15, 2017, Game of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi will launch the show's first official musical tour, complete with orchestra and choir. The tour will conquer 28 cities in its campaign to dominate our earbuds.
"For seven years, Ramin has been blowing our mind with his music's force, subtlety, and endless inventiveness," said Game of Thrones creators/executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss in a statement. "The GoT Concert Experience will be unique in the history of concert tours, an eye-popping, ear-splitting, phantasmagoric blend of the show's visuals and Ramin's powerful compositions. We are more excited for it than anyone."
According to the announcement, Djawadi's concert tour will use state-of-the-art technology to pair scenes from the series with live performances of the composer's score. Early concept art reveals castle sets and flaming towers. Eat your heart out, Ozzy Osbourne (or let Daenerys do that for you -- she's into heart-eating).
